“The most irreplaceable Apple device in my house right now is the little streaming engine that could: the $179 Apple TV 4K,” Taylor writes. “My wife and I were skeptics, but took the plunge and bought one this time last year, back when Amazon Prime (finally!) became available on Apple TVs. And for almost every day of the 365 since then, its smart features, accurate voice-based search and jaw-dropping visuals have surprised and delighted us — more than enough to make up for the price tag. ”
“None of the cheaper streaming boxes come anywhere close,” Taylor writes. “Neither my wife nor I are fans of Siri in its iPhone iteration; for everyday questions, we find our Alexa devices to be more intelligent and understanding.
